After one of the most devasting years of celebrity breakups, it seems like things are looking up for love in Hollywood. Not only did Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra get engaged this week, but The Weeknd and Bella Hadid are officially back together! According to E! News, the on-again couple is “exclusively” dating again after months of reconcialiation rumors.
Sources told the website that the singer and model the “are in a great place,” adding that The Weeknd didn’t like the dating scene as much as he liked Bella. “Abel realized once he started dating around, that he actually is still in love with Bella, and they reconnected,” the insider said. The two have been “secretly seeing each other” for the past few months, which according to our timeline, would mean they started talking again after their rumored make-out session at Coachella in April.
Since then, the two have been inseparable and are really making it a point to work around each other’s busy schedules. “They haven’t had more than a few weeks apart. Abel flies to wherever Bella is working since he had a gap in his tour and has been very accommodating,” the source continued.
This explains The Weeknd’s surprise appearance at that Cannes Film Festival in May. He had no reason to be there other than to meet up with Bella, who’s an ambassador of Magnum, the ice cream company that hosted the afterparty they were both spotted attending. After that night, fans knew something was going on with them because the PDA-filled photos and videos were all the proof we needed.
The couple also traveled to Toyko together last week, where The Weeknd made his romance Instagram official. He posted a bunch of video of his apparent girlfriend, as well as a super cuddly mirror pic. There was no denying it after that. Then, Bella posted an IG Story of him alongside the words “muse forever” and that put an end to any speculation for good! We’re so glad, too. We were heartbroken when they split in 2016, but we always had hope that they’d find their way back to one another.
Insiders say that Bella’s family is over the moon over her reunion with The Weeknd and that they’re “really happy about them being back together in full-force.” Apparently, everyone around them knew it was only a matter a time before they were committed to each other again.
It’s an exciting time to be a celebrity in love these days. So far, it’s been the summer of quickie engagements, which makes us wonder if The Weeknd and Bella are next…
